Internet censorship in Dubai and UAE

For the most part, internet censorship is not overly draconian in the UAE. See our privacy policy. If so please report the members concerned so we can take action. Sue August 12, at 4: However, my being polite and honest may be setting myself up to be deceived, as ironic as that may sound.

Thank you for doing so. Have always thought of answering them about that. How many members do you have? How many do you foresee having when you are in full swing? When do you expect to be up and running? Well, this has real potential! So I signed up for this right away. I really need to play and laugh more and am looking forward to meeting like-minded people.

Thanks for doing this; I have high hopes! It is far beyond what the younger set wants. I personally would like to meet a christian man who enjoys gardening etc, Not looking for marriage.

Good luck on the new site. I have been on the online roller coaster for a year now and it really is disheartening to see the deceit that goes with it. Posting pics that are 20 years old and saying boasting things that are so not real either.

Being online gives you a sense of protection from being caught in an untruthful statement. This gives you a voice behind the picture and can seal a deal to have a meal together not a drink or coffee.

You can learn alot over a meal. Table manners mean alot to some of us….. This sounds exactly what I have been looking for. I want to make more friends, companions without all the complictaions of so called dating to fing a relationship. I got a lot of feedback from people about the age I chose when I first wrote that post, so Stitch is actually open to anyone over The only rule we enforce is that you need to be over 50 to join Stitch. Our members range from 50 up into their late 80s!

I have tried many of the others…. I wholeheartedly believe in finding many instead of just one…. We all need friends and companions…. Very excited about this new site. I have been doing online dating for awhile. Im so hoping this one will be different. I wish you so much success with your endeavor. Our biggest challenge is going to be making sure everyone hears about Stitch so we can get a lot of really nice people signing up … the real key is making sure that the people on Stitch are the sorts of people want to meet.

So anything you can do to help spread the word will be welcome! How do we find out what your schedule is for our areas? Thousands of applicants and no response! Whereabouts are you located? Depending on where you are, we could be available to you in a few weeks to a few months from now. Hello, Just got done reading all the info and found it very interesting..

I am signed up with another dating service until Nov. It is great to know how much you are interested with the older crowd. Good Luck to you and I wish you the Best. I would like to meet some senior people in my age about 50 years old and near my city, Houston. Just Signed up and have a try. I only signed up for Stitch because there was a segment on the news for folks 55 and older to meet.

I was very excited when I heard about Stitch and sighed up about two months ago. You are spot on and I hope you set the world on fire. How do you plan on attracting more men to the site?

Also, location is a real factor, so I need more than just a hint about a potential friends distance from me. I work 30 miles from home and would also be up for events after work. On the other hand, many others want to see where someone lives as location is so very important to them.

In general there is usually more females than there are males. As a Latina I would enjoy meeting fellas that are Latino as well…. Its not easy meeting new people especially if there is a hidden agenda. Thanks so much for such encouraging feedback! Sadly, if Stitch was looked at as a way to meet, greet and eat women men might come out in groves due to word of mouth. I still love people and still believe in humanity. Please let us know how you go!

Andrew just come across your site but find its women on your blog never done this before perhaps need help have now one to ask. I agree with almost all of this — but the part about the phone? I get along fine in person, even in restaurants, but my cell phone is a trial. Hearing aids and cell phones are not a good match…. Email can be a much better alternative. Look thru a handful or more on Match or any other site and women over 55, as an example, are just as restricvtive on age range than the younger generations.

I defy anyone to show me otherwise. Trying to decide which membership plan if any to upgrade to. It was interesting to read the comments. I noticed that there were very few men who contributed. Is this normally the case, and more importantly, is this an accurate barometer of numbers of interested males verses females? Thank you for taking my question.

It would be great if the ratio was 1: Having said that, we are constantly working to increase the number of men on Stitch, and always welcome new suggestions to help in this area. We also notice that our men are much less likely to write comments on posts and activities than our female members — I think most online social media sites observe a similar phenomenon. Good article except that while I agree that it depends on the fitness etc of the person that can vary with ages, particularly as we get older, fitness is usually not included in the profiles and I believe there are still some differences in views and needs between generations.

For instance people still working, even part time, have different needs to people who are retired. A relationship may still work, but may have more complications. Also past histories, which still make us, even though we change and evolve, still have some impact on who we are and our perceptions, and people whose ages are significantly apart are likely to have less in common.

While people may die at any age, there is more likelihood that someone 70 has less active life left than a person 55 and that could be important for people looking for long term relationships.

Who wants to be left on their own when they are older because their partner died much earlier if it can be avoided to some extent. I think an indication of the age of the person is still important for us mature adults. No need to state age preferences if not wanted but at least it gives a bit more ideal about a person than can be provided in the limited profiles. This article is spot on! A lot of these folks, would be hard pressed to try dating 30 years ago without cell phones, instant messaging, internet or restaurants, entertainment venues and such on every street corner.

All we need is good driving weather and possibly a bladder break or two. Some people may not mind, but others do, for various reasons — time available, ability to travel, preference to have friends in own location etc.

The same applies to ages. Sorry to hear that Jennifer. If so please report the members concerned so we can take action. I am 56, very recently retired, very active, fit and adventurous. Is this a venue where I may find mature women of similar traits?

Lucky to be retired so young! Stitch is definitely built to help people like you meet mature women with similar interests. I agree with all of what is posted and would add that everyone is differently unique and looking for someone who compliments their specific qualities. Wishing everyone much success and many loving connections….. Great article, well written and extremely thoughtful. Age is just a number and there are lots of us out there looking for a n other.

Would you please use the word sex at least once in a while. I am no old dude in a trench coat. I want to date, share and have sex. Are there woman out there over 60 who desire friendship yes. Your site is a very, very good site. I am not complaining. I just called up your profile on Stitch and was a bit confused as to where you are located — are you in the Canary Islands?

I will turn sixty next month. DOes anyone else out there feel as if they are still in their thirties — I do. THanks to my love for exercise in all forms I have managed to stay quite fit and my age has not restricted my activities of daily living.

I would love to meet someone my age or even older who I can have great conversation with, a man who is respectful and know s how to treat a lady and is also fun loving and loves great home made food admitted food snob ONe thing worries me however — I have heard of many woman and I am sure men as well, that have been burned by someone they initially thought to be Great and subsequently revealed their true colors.

So pleased you found us J! After being a widow for two years, I am just recently getting back into the dating scene and everything that you stated is spot on.. This new dating game is altogether different than when I dated 55 years ago. I am a 80yr old woman looking for friendship a casual relationship. Men in my age group are all looking for younger women. Absolutely agree with all the points made here.

Just started connecting — in person — with a guy that eHarmony matched me with. It was the same story, over and over, without much variance.

Single dad, daughter usually in boarding school in some foreign country. Trust is important, so is companionship, and not necessarily marriage or looks. More and more senior people are looking for companionship online now.

Since many senior couples have their first date as a result of their meeting on a senior dating site, that means, of course, you two should meet in a well-light, public venue.

That means, yes, you drive to pick her up. Only after the two of you are a couple and well past your third month of commitment can you start asking her to meet you at the venue.

This is just a thought, but, did you ever consider a way to meet another senior in a city you are visiting just to have dinner or see a play or see the local sites. Thank you — seems like a great idea. Do you think this will be a possibility in the near future?

A 84 I may not have too long to search. Best wishes John S Hawkins, Lincoln. Yes the current state of pretty much every dating site out there is quite horrible. Stitch is very different. I am glad I have found your site as maybe another elderly woman lived the same situation in the past and could give me her opinion. I am 67 years old woman and have been single for quite a while. There is this 79 years old gentleman who keeps asking me to live with me.

We went for supper a few times but he is very persistent and even though I appreciate his company I am very concern about developing a true relationship with him. My worry is about age. He is very fit at 79 years old with a recent bill of health.

If I agree to live with him how worried should I be about future health issues. I am too old to lift him if he falls. I cannot give him a bath once he get disable. I know it can happen to me as well but in 10 years he will be 90 years old. Should I be concern and not get involved with someone 14 years my elderly? This is not out of selfishness but consideration for both our ability to take care of each other. I could get sick sooner than he and maybe he will not be able to take care of me.

A relationship is more than watching TV together or going for a visit at the zoo. He is a fantastic guy and I wish I had known him many years ago. Maybe someone would share their experience in a similar situation. Thank you to those who will. Glad you found us! Let me know if you need any help! To me, if I were to find someone, I would like someone to be here 2 or 3 nights a week and I could do the same at his home. You are so right to consider if he becomes disabled and you would then feel like you are required to take care of him.

Undoubtedly, that is what this man is thinking about. Do NOT feel obligated to have him live with you. Tell him you love if you do or care about him very much but at this stage of life other arrangements are unnecessary.

Seniors experienced with loss crave love, companionship, excitement, and potential longevity. We rarely find what we set out for. If you find your soulmate, suddenly age becomes less important.

An element of risk becomes a companion. Men risk financial security much more then women simply because more times then not, they can. The nurturing woman is more apt to risk her heart and overlook age and potential health issues for the right man.

Love amoung seniors has a depth and commitment unknown at any other time in life. It is also more complicated then other generations can imagine. Right decisions with the right mate is a gift beyond words. Wrong decisions with the wrong mate can be crippling for life. Why does it seem like society is so against women over 50 being proactive in finding love? On-line dating for Seniors is very hard.

Looks are still important! Loyalty and commitment to only one partner is important. Filtering is very important, especially about things like religion, ethnicity, age, weight, etc. About the only point I really found true in this entire article is that TRUST is very important — but i think that is true for all ages, along with respect and loyalty.

For women, a lot more difficult. Because men always seem to want the younger women and when I say younger I mean the under 35s. Skinny, blonde, the whole 9 yards. If you are over 55, not white, and overweight…forget it. No one wants you. That is the truth. Get used to being alone lol. True…trouble is the men want to text as well.. Sadly, that seems to be the going thing. Men have had access to, specifically, on line pornography since the internet… beautiful young woman on line they pay to have pleasure with.

With the onset of senior dating sites some men go to dating sites instead seeking woman who will oblige them with naked pictures of themselves and sexting and the cost for men to experience this is their site membership and their time.

This appears as an alternative for men who may be having some sexual dysfunction occurring because of age or illness or men who are not interested in being real with a real person that includes emotion or a relationship. Whatever the case may be this is happening since these men want to experience pleasure however they are able get it. Times are changing and the way men and women relate is changing to. The idea that men and woman are seeking fun and adventure rather than spending their later years alone is exciting and challenging.

As a woman I believe the boundaries we had and the expectations we had about men needs some tweeking. Men are not bad and evil for the most part. In fact they are for the most part good people that see and feel and experience the world differently than woman.

No person, man or woman wants to feel on line pressure to do anything they are not used to…so here in lies personal thresholds that may need some readjustment and thoughtful consideration. The way we choose to text and talk to each other and finally meet makes all the difference. At 80 having had polio 76 years ago and lived normal life, raised 5 kids, had a wonderful husband that died 20 years ago.

All kids married with children living all on their own with good jobs too. I walk with a crutch and have good health, drive my car around town but miss conversation.

My dog even died. At this age most of my friends are gone too. I guess God has no need for me yet. In the meantime it would be nice too have someone to talk with instead of only the girls at Mcdonalds. I was married for over 40 years when my wife decided she wanted to go in a different direction as we were very young when we married. I was very hurt but after being divorced for a year I realise she was probably right and we remain close.

I am quite fit and active for my age and would love a companion with similar interests and outlook however I am terrified of dating sites and as I live in a very small community the opportunities to meet anyone are very limited? Every time I have thought about online dating or the like I have backed away because I do not have the confidence to progress it.

Probably writing to ladies in the first instance is my only way of eventually getting out there and building that confidence. I noticed in your testimonials that some people got together or became friends after corresponding. Thanks so much for sharing such an honest and open comment — even posting a comment on a forum like this can be challenging, let alone trying online dating!

Hi, I believe I will be the only person you have heard from who says I am 90 years in age. I feel very lucky to be in good health and still drive and do my own errands. I was married for 68 years and had a wonderful husband who I lost two years ago.

He was a fantastic dancer and I miss dancing now. I would like some one as a friend and likes to be active and dances and likes playing cards and enjoys life like I do.

I also believe there will never be a man in this category. You sound as if you had a wonderful marriage, thanks so much for sharing. Most are even better after hip replacement. Personally I can now hike over 7 miles with a few thousand feet of gain and still feel great.

And the golfer, Tom Watson almost won the British Open with hip replacement on both hips. And that includes walking the course, usually 4 plus miles. Really, get educated folks. I am a Michigan raised woman ,I like the arts and also go to a theatre going to see real people act.

I have went to grafting school. I would like to travel in my retirement years and watch the stars. I am very honest person,and I am looking for a man who knows how to treat woman with respect and honesty. And has no other woman to hide.

I am a British male in his 70s, in excellent health and solvent, who would like the friendship and company of an unattached lady — fairly close to me in age — looks of no importance. Trouble is, I live in mid-western France, and practically all my friends here are in happy relationships. I have wasted my time with other dating sites who could only suggest members living three hours drive or more away — a long way to go for that first cup of coffee.

Hi, I have just discovered Stitch! Am a 74 female, who speaks English and French and is looking for male friends, female friends I have lots. I am in the middle of changes at the moment and am trying to reconfigure my life. I like to travel, read, write but am trying to overcome a fractured knee at the moment.

I am also the proud grandma of 4 grandchildren. So glad you found us Marie! I sent you a message about half an hour ago. Could I please slip in one more word: I have also met younger men and seem to enjoy their fresh attitude, just not sure about how life looks at younger men.

Eileen June 6, at 3: Andrew Dowling June 7, at 3: Nancy June 7, at 8: Cynthia June 8, at 9: Andrew Dowling June 9, at 1: Maya June 9, at I have decided to reenter the dating game after 15 years of keeping silent and to myself with family. I just woke up one day and decided at 66, I want to meet a man that has similar likes and dislikes as me.

I have a small farm that I dearly love working on and grow all my food, including chickens. It is almost impossible to find a man that likes this sort of lifestyle, much less wants to be involved in it. The perfect partner for me would certainly be a small farmer that loves the soil and works it with love every day. He would also have to like salt water fishing because next to the soil that is a big love of mine as well. So it is not going to happen for me unless I take the time and pursue this in places where farmers and fishing are prevalent.

Therefore, I will begin to go to those farmer days and outings and I will spend lots more time at the beach fishing. If I meet someone special that is great. Good luck to everyone looking and be safe always. Hi Linda, thanks for your comment. Linda I totally identify with what you said. In up state NY my options are almost non existent Love to fish be in the oods and grow things.

As I read your comment,I felt a little ftustrated. I have the same comments about these sites as everyone else. I was on Farmers Only for several months and experienced much disappointment. In my profile,I stated who and what I was and that I desired to connect with woman who enjoyef rural life. Truly believe most women on that site were looking for a dtugstore cowboy with a new shiny truck. None of the women on Farmers say they wanted to meet a man with rural roots which I found rather odd.

You just have to keep turning stones. Strange but unlike most comments here I have found the dating sites overwhelmingly populated by cougars. The 61 yr old female looking for 25 to 50 yr old men. I no longer frequent any of them since most ladies never respond to any show of interest but keep coming back to view my profile but never leaving a message at all.

One thing I am not looking for is more frustration in my life. Marsha Your message is exactly how i feel. Still full time employed and self sufficient, divorced for over 12 years. Not interested in sleeping around. Just want companionship for events, listening to oldies music from the 70s, trips and just exchange experiences and laugh a lot.

But looks like there are NO men going for that. Ive decided to just join cultural, gardening and volunteer groups where I can meet people face to face. However, this article is extremely honest and well written. You have to keep safe and keep playing.

Lots of people I know are now part of a twosome. Oh Really am new to all this i have also meet a lady that posted her old pictures when she was young.

After reading some of the shared comments, I would like to add my two cents worth. It does seem to be challenging to meet quality people for me -men that would like to have q good relationship with a good woman Their mouth or pen is moving. What is wrong with getting to know a person first? Finding out if you like each other enough to forsake others and try to see if you two can make a go of it? At our age we should have experience enough life to know what basically is negotiable vs is nonnegotiable.

How about being comfortable with not only who you are, but where you are in life? No, I am not talking about sitting all day in a rocker and playing dead. But , enjoying life with whatever disabilities, lumps bumps, etc. Now a days-there seems to be more inference on sex than anything else. Sex-when has that ever determine the value of any relationship? Whatever happen to wanting to get to know one another? Which can lead to true friendship and companionship.

Do you remember when you could talk to each other about everything and nothing-but still enjoying just being together? How about when you were looking across the room at each other , and sharing that special smile -that special look that said so much?.

Yet to others, it said nothing-but to you two ahhh-it was like a secret code that only the two of you knew. Well, Steve Harvey always says the 90 day rules applies to everyone. Yes Dorene I agree with you as well. I love Steve Harvey and own both of his books on relationships. What he is saying makes a lot of sense. I was in a very bad marriage for 26 years that was hard for me to get out of as my ex was abusive in very many ways.

Since I have been out in the dating world I find that everything seems to have changed. But after 26 years I was sure it would be. When I left my ex and found a gentleman who truly was a gentleman and waited to approach me about being intimate. It may have not been the 90 days but it was a while and we dated for four years. So now I hope that I can find someone who would at least give the relationship time instead of hopping in the sack. I see a psychologist because of my past and let him know of what I am finding in this new world of dating.

The bottom line is men and there are women as well are not respectful of one another anymore. I wish everyone well with their searches and may God bless you. What a well written post, and I totally agree with everything that you said. What happened to men who respected you for the person you are and enjoyed being in your company for the purpose of conversation and connecting mentally?

Does anyone believe in companionship or friendship anymore? Would love to meet a man with honest values and one who is capable of making a commitment. Men Do want younger women and younger men want Sugar Mamas! These dating sites have been a joke. Just stumbled upon this site, loving it. Well I just stumbled onto this site too.

I appreciate the thoughtfulness and honesty of the posts here Your post is something i could have said too about women. I think the sad truth is that most people are not capable of having a truly intimate relationship. It seems the older people are, the more it is true.

Most people become more rigid the older they get, and certainly more set in their ways, making them less likely to give up the freedom they have as a single person.

I think most of us like the idea of being in a loving relationship. What i have found out is that finding someone who can actually show up when the heat is on and wants to be with me, and i want to be with her is rare, especially being over sixty. Having a personality and mutual respect is what the foundation should be for any relationship regardless of the age of those involved. It is true that the men are seeking sex….. Just be honest if u want a friend with benefits then let the guy know.

If u are not into the guy, pay your own way on the date and move on down the line. No gentleman wants to be considered as an entertainment center at this point in his life and would hope that the woman in his company actually enjoyed his company and was not simply with him for A Night out and a free meal.

Of course, it is my belief that doing the everyday things of life….. Will let us know if we are compatible with one another…. Sitting across from you at some restaurant tells me nothing about you except your table manners. For me at this stage of my life …66…. Best of luck to each of you….

After reading some of the comments about online dating sites I would like to make a comment about Plenty of Fish. I thought it was a really good website until I got kicked off because all of my emails from them kept going in my spam. Try to get back on there and it is next to impossible. I have written to them several times to see if they could help me get back on.

The scammers are everywhere on all of these sites. I was almost scammed 3 times I am ashamed to admit but they are very devious! I am 61 years old and find that most of the men I talk to have nothing but sex on their mind. I think our world is going to hell really quick. It is very depressing and I wish there were more honest people on these sites and not jerks! Needless to say I am still looking for a good man. In March when I officially retire I think I am going to start looking at activities through churches and community buildings to try to meet people.

It seems to me that would be the only way to meet someone as I am not a bar hopper or nor do I go to clubs. Good luck everyone on finding your soul mate! Kevin Gillham it is good to hear there are good men out there. I am sorry that your marriage ended the way it did. I have stopped going on the online dating sites. I was diagnosed with another health issue that I have confronted and in the process have lost forty pounds and am doing really well.

I know my problems were due to an abusive marriage and now I am feeling more confident about myself. I enjoyed your feedback and hope to hear from you again. Hi Kevin Same thing happened to me. Hi Kevin, yOu sOund like the man every woman dream of. I bet yOur not alone anymore. This is the First time I visited this site….

And out of curiousity i read many of the comments and the replies… there seems to be quite a bit of confusion about sex and indivuales …. I agree with you on almost E very thing that you said. If you live near or close to , we can bond and explore.. Thanks and God bless! I wish you the best of luck! New also and none of this real sounds like it is even worth the effort. Thank you very much. I think it more says, well I want to know what I will get for my dollar coffee and of course my one hour of invested time.

I hear the women and the men and my view for what its worth sounds like both are a little defensive, with good cause.

You may find a treasure or merely a friend. You will have gotten to know another person. Enough said, no lecture intended.

Most men are jerks. Most men get older but not necessarily more mature. Most men never learn how to be friends first with women. Most men are too concerned with sex as if sex is the answer to everything. I was looking for compatibility and connection, for communication, for shared interests and values.

If you had read my profile on OK Cupid, if you had answered a few hundred questions, like I did, it would be easy for you to determine that I was a quality guy.

What matters is that you carefully weed out the wheat from the chaff. You just have to sort out the frogs from the princes. Not all women on these sites are prizes either. There is usually a good reason or two why women are single later in life.

I think what our society does in general to men is not conducive to making them good in relationships. Men are told not to cry, not to show emotion, not to be vulnerable. I was just lucky to be born into a culture that rejects that view of men and teaches respect, if not adulation, for women.

The larger issue is how men get to be the way they are. You know the old saying, about the hand that rocks the cradle can change the world? There are good men out there, like me. Sure a lot of us are taken, just like a lot of good women are taken. The time you spend complaining can be better used in searching. Thanks for your comment. It sounds to me that these are sex preditors lurking on the site and their profiles are probably phoney. Absolutely do not respond to them; rather, please report them to the site.

These guys could be very dangerous. There are good and honest people everywhere, some may not be in your location so if you such you have to sacrifice to get them. At 53, I know my best sex years are behind me physically but I still have the desire to have my hands on her curves, lips kissing her in the spots that at least I am attracted to, nape of her neck, as a for instance , etc.

Do you really think you are going to find a best friend who is the opposite sex? Best friends become so … because they have same interests, and through the pursuit of their interests they are for lack a better term, thrust together and their time spent enjoying that interest buys time spent with another which then can blossom into a true friendship. Not a lot of women are dedicated to football, hunting, etc, the things that men are often found around.

If I am seeking a best friend, then I will look in the areas where I am going to have a good time too. Anyways the problem I have become convinced is the true enemy, is how many women cannot get happy with their appearance, not even to the point of when I am very adamant about how much I love their breasts I happen to prefer breasts that are saggy, because to me, those are real breasts, perky just makes me feel like a pedophile , and I use that as an example, it could just as easily be their bottom or legs or whatever.

Point is that if I say it turns me on … take my word for it! And let go like you would if you DID have that body that you seem to think is SO important to have a great sex life. I know its not an answer, just an explanation. We do at least try.

I could name the ones which make us men look less flattering but you Ladies know which ones hurt your situation more. So ya, whether the man admits it or not, and whether he is able to even perform or not, its still about sex.

She knows and keeps his secrets, and he loves her for that because again … sadly in our world today, it is THAT important to a man that he be viewed as a MAN, in full and completeness. Lastly , it is true most or many men are POS. Would like to know more so can write me at nelykeoyahoo.

Whereas I support most of that, the complexities of such an agenda are too great. All that counts in this society is money. We have a crass commercial culture that is totally about what you look like, how much money you make, the car you drive, the house you live in, etc.

Heads up for men who are broke: All the while he was a white collar criminal. He finally got caught and went to prison. The state took everything [of hers and his] and considered all assets to be fruit from the poisonous tree. AARP has 30,50,70 age range yet its advertised as over70dating. I sure wish I could find a way to no longer receive email messages about this thread. I have sent 2 messages to your site, and I never get a reply, and I still get an email every time someone comments.

There is no unsubscribe anywhere. Thanks for removing me from the email list. I am with a verrrrry special man who I met through okcupid. There are some good and honest ones out there! If you ladies think you have it bad.

I am 71 and a widow. I too, look a lot younger. I have been on our time for only a short time and had several contacts. Three of them I have met.

Only one was close to my age. The other two were 80 and But, like of you said, they want women 10to15 years younger. Would you mind telling me which side you have checked out. Almost dread starting all over again with the new site. I have been on several of the senior dating sites for several months. I finally figured out that men are not interested in women over 60 no matter how good the women might look. Then they are looking for anyone as a nurse or a purse.

Very sad how women our age are so disrespected—even by AARP. Look at the women they feature on their covers. You are wrong GG. You might be right in general terms, but I want to grow old with someone who will be facing the same things at the same time as I will. I choose a woman too much older than me, and odds are I will first have to watch her suffer through some horrible illness and then have to bury my love.

At least not to the ability I could have, when I was their age. I have tried all the date sites and never had any luck. They all tell you what you want to hear and all become lies. Or all want money. No luck with any or them. Free or not, every senior dating site sucks!

They claim and advertise things that are not true! How can we, as seniors, who are disgusted and tired of their lies, bring them down? Is a class suite the answer? Ironically, it seems to be one of the better ones. Virtually all of the sites seem to be run greedy, deceptive owners who do little to prevent fraud and scamming, commit it themselves in their billing practices.

All seem to have clunky or flawed matching functions whether deliberate or not , and other problems, with little if any customer support. Ironically, even sites claiming a religious orientation do this.

I was on one small site that was very honest and well run Science Connection , but they had a very small user base, and went out of business last year. Sadly, there seems to be no large, honest, well run dating site on the entire web. Getting such a site started in the sea of already dominant, dishonest ones would probably be hard, but if there any honest entrepreneurs out there, I encourage you to give it a go! By the way, I had to chuckle at some a couple of people who left their email addresses, hoping to meet someone like minded here, after having little luck on dating sites.

So, what the hey, let me do the same. I like to get to know a woman before anything else. Thanks, and good luck to everyone. They never restricted membership age anyway, so I guess now they are openly appealing to younger singles. So, one less Internet site for senior singles, altho Our Time was awful anyway. Another black eye for us senior singles. Dating sites listed above, I used to be on some..

OK Cupid do not favor me and I deactivated my membership, sick of lies. I got several messages from younger ladies wanting a fling but I needed something more.

So we had no chemistry. Anyone that would recommend a better site where I can find my soulmate. If you find a good website let me know. I too am tired of all the lies and the requests for money. Nothing but lies, or fake profiles. I found one reviews site that might be useful for you. I know that SeniorMatch does not allow members below the age of You can take a look and choose the suitable one for you.

I know one review sites for online senior dating http: It has listed the best 5 sites including SeniorMatch and OurTime. I have tried Our Time and Senior People Meet and have not been real impressed and been asked for money from men on both sites. I am taking a break from the sites for now because it all became to depressing but if I decide to return I will try one of the others.

You gotta love it: Check out the SeniorMatch website. It has a photo of a something woman with a something man. So another slap to senior women. Plus the ages that they allow are 30 years and older. Also want to comment about Our Time. I tried them and hated it because of how it works. And you show know this: Does it look like everyone around you makes it look so simple but you have a hard time with this idea whenever someone new asks you out? You may be setting about it the wrong method, or you may merely require some dating ideas for ladies that will make the procedure a little simpler.

Get tips at http: So depressing and frustrating. I have been on these sites, not for long but, I also noticed that the men seem to want young ladies, , I been on zooks,.

If you are paying money for ANY of the other sites, you are likely wasting it. The folks at OK Cupid have devised a series of questions. The more you answer and the more the people you are looking for answer, the better the suggested matchups. As an example, I am very close friends with a woman I would otherwise have never met. It would be more, but neither of us wants a long distance relationship. BTW she is 60 and I am By being totally honest about what I was looking for — an activity partner — and about my current relationship, I found three lovely women.

The fourth person I met about a year ago now as I write this turned out to be the other love of my life. ALL of them live long distance, like over miles. How does that help me again? I thought it was set up just for scamming. Once my profile was complete, the first 7 men who contacted me were all scammers. POF is one of the worst.

I was on there the other day, thinking I would put up my profile once again. All profiles have been on POF for at least 5 years. Not one has been updated, not one. Same old photos, same old blah blah blah. What does that tell you?

I am looking for someone to have an intelligent conversation with. Someone that can make me laugh and just enjoy life. Stay tuned… We expect to publish it in the next two weeks.

What are the senior site creators thinking? Hi operasinger, I was also on SinglesOver But I feel good so far. But the situation is much better when I am on SO Though there is not that much contacts but most of them are serious contacts that I can tell. Maybe there is some patience needed. If any one knows of a truly focusing on seniors I would like to know. Hi homentx and operasinger, we just published our updated dating sites list. We have big hopes for Stitch.

I recently joined OurTime and have been hugely disappointed. Again, they let all ages join. But reading email only on their site is a disaster and very difficult to manage in the crush of those who put only something in the Subject line and no message. You also get a flood of really dumb stuff from OurTime, notifications if a guy merely looks at your profile, etc.

But worst of all, their Search program is virtually worthless. So I will end my subscription when my 1 month runs out. Have you tried Zoosk? It has men your age. Just as in any site, you have to pick and choose who to learn more about. Zoosk is very expensive, just like Our Time, eHarmony.

Free is the best. I had to quit my job for medical reasons. I was in an abusive marriage for 26 years and my self esteem is low enough. I am under counseling and take medication. The men that talk to me seem to want to just use me also. After 4 dates, he decided to call it quits with no explanation. So, I keep trying, but refuse to pay to find a good guy any longer. Most guys my age want a younger woman, even though most of them are not much to look at or have that much to offer.

A word I absolutely hate! Personally, an older man who thinks he needs a much younger woman, has some serious issues.

I stay away from players and fakes. Most men are a-holes, what can I say? When I was younger, I preferred older women. I prefer women my age, within 10 years. Look for a guy who has a legit reason for being available. Look for a guy who knows how to treat a woman. Look for a guy who has worked on himself, to become a better person. As my current love says, you definitely have to kiss a lot of frogs.

You do NOT have to sleep with them. The problem for women is our age. It is our biggest obstacle because soooooooo many men want younger women. Plus, the so-called singles websites for Seniors are NOT just for single seniors. They let all ages in. So us older women are ignored there, too.

The only website that claims to verify their subscribers is Stitch. Thank you Bud for your words. We know they are out there somewhere, but it is frustrating slashing through the ignorant ones to find the good one. I was shocked after joining to find that out, and the first and only man to contact me is 42 with a 6-year old son.

Had the same experience on Match. This was the polar opposite experience when I was in my 50s. I can understand where you are coming from with having to reveal your true age and men not even attempting to look at your profile.

I am in the same boat. I look so much younger than my actual age. So what do I do? Even with lying about my age I am still getting older looking men who are fuddy duddy, big bellies all out of shape and here I am in shape, exercise, eat healthy, look very good in my cloths I am slender and look very youthful.

I can easily pass for 50 years old if not younger. Went to the ER once, gave all my info to the gal. Yet another gal came in to ask my age and I told her someone already had taken that information. She just wanted to make sure that person had it right because I looked no where near what I had put down and it was my true age.

So gals, do what you have to do to get that man you want. I am almost there. Men lie about their ages too. I call it a lil white lie. And I do tell them on the phone before we meet that I did not tell my correct age.

Thanks for your feedback. So there seems no where to find men our ages who genuinely want to a woman their age. Even on the senior sites, they want much younger women and can find them there.

Senior sites should have an age floor. Senior sites should have a way to not allow men under a certain age to register. I am sure they can monitor the postings before posting them. The do the monitoring so there are no surprises. But you know what, I doubt there will be many senior men joining. They want that young gal. Youthful and beautiful yet that age number is standing in the way.

We all need to think of a nice site that would work well for us youthful senior women and create it together. Let it be FREE to all. But also, no women younger than, say But someone needs to address the true needs of senior singles, especially women. We are society throw aways.

Is sexual intimacy between unmarried senior citizens sinful? These men with low testosterone experienced improved sexual function and even saw slight improvement in their ability to walk and their sense of vitality.

However, I still think some age dating websites for senior citizens are important. You have to screen everyone carefully. I see a psychologist because of my past and let him know of what I am finding in this new world of dating. Tube Porn Pages It sounds to me that these are sex preditors lurking vor the site and their profiles are probably phoney.
